NYCE Wheels

NYCE  Wheels is a retail Bike shop in NYC and  they did an incredibly great YOU TUBE video review of Orp here.
It’s really  thorough  and pretty funny at the end.
Kind of makes us at Orp feel a little flat footed as we need to  do a video like this!

Suburban Assault

Suburban Assault posted a a great review of Orp.
The blog’s author  was an early Orp adopter on Kickstarter.
Thanks SA!



This is the second time  Stevil  has given Orp a look.  AHTBM had given the Orp concept a thumbs up during the Kickstarter campaign and  this time  he had real production units in his possession.
His Orp review  is really mostly about  the author,  of course,  but he put some nice pictures  of  Orp in the piece so I’m returning the favor.
The thing that ‘s cool about AHTBM is that the blog’s author,  Stevil Kinevil,  is a real bike industry veteran and he  doesn’t pull any punches.

The Collective Loop

The Collective Loop is a place where art, design, music, technology and more collectively loop.
This is the website’s self describer and it’s a good curator of cool stuff. We are certainly honored to be recognized.
Same story, they love Orp. Their quote is: ” this thing is Orptastic”. Thanks Collective Loop!

Men’s Journal July 2014

The July issue of Men’s Journal  features  Orp’s baby blues, err, bright surface mount yellow LEDs and Orp’s toned Snot Green Skin  in the WHAT’S NEW Section.
Its a pretty long  article (OK, not really), but long story short: they  like  Orp and say its a must have!


Orp made the first  photo entry in Zach Schildshorn‘s {great name, by the way, but Orps are for everyone} article about alternative transportation post the Segway.
 Mr. Schildshorn explains that the bicycle has very quickly become the  transportation alternative to the car and that several entrepreneurs have embraced this fact
 to make the bike  safer or better somehow. Here’s the link and here’s the author.

Pedal NC reviews Orp!

Pedal NC gives  a production Orp a great review.
Here’s a little of waht Jertemy wrote:

“On the other occasions they… well… they popped their head up!  The combination between pleasant sound and flashing light is just the perfect culmination of safety needed on a bike.  But when we quit pushing the trigger up, and started pulling it down, the quickness of the head turns was much more noticeable.  Even the passing cars would tap their brakes as I sounded the horn.  It was an amazing experience to say the least.”

The Today Show

Orp was on NBC’s  The Today Show this morning in a segment that highlighted new innovative products.The presenter didn’t exaxctly get Orp’s functions  or  price right,
but it was totally great to have Orp there.   Anchors Carson Daly and  Tamron Hall  certainly had fun with Orp on the set.

All Season Cyclist

All Season Cyclist (ASC) is a great site filled with great reviews from a committed  cyclist in North East Illinois.
 The author rides year round and  says if you have the right gear, weather is never an issue.
 Of late, he averages 6000 or so miles per year on his bike.
ASC gives Orp a great review and  really raises expectations. Thanks, I think.

MTBR is by mountain bikers and for mountain bikers and they   got a preview of Orp when we
 had pre-production samples. Here’s the story.
 What’s important here is Orp is not only for the road.  How many times have you almost run over a runner
 on a shared trail? With Orp  you can warn runners, hikers and slower rider as you approach blind turns.
